Musician, Hiatus Kaiyote

One year later, the two began to collaborate on compositions that felt intuitive. Bender  brought multi-instrumentalists Perrin Moss and keyboardist Simon Mavin into the equation and the electric, organic nature of Hiatus Kaiyote was set in motion.

Paul appears on the Face The Music 2014 program.
